Jack Klem was born Deaf. And at just 12 years of age, he is about to represent Australia on the world stage.
Jack is one of a handful of young Australians who has been chosen to attend the International Deaf Leadership Camp in Argentina in 2018. This prestigious event only takes place every four years – places are limited and competition is fierce. Only the brightest are selected to attend the conference.
This is where young Deaf people learn to be leaders. They are given world-class leadership training and mentoring. For all of the participants, this will be their first experience of international sign language. This is a crucial introduction that will open up study and work opportunities on a larger scale. It will also be the first time many of the participants will be in the company of Deaf children from other countries.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Jack. And we need your help to get him to Argentina.
Join us for an afternoon of wonderful storytelling and excellent company.
See stories from young Jack Klem himself and inspiring Deaf community leaders Vanessa Alford and Tenna Kozuh. Be captivated by a mime performance from Deaf cabaret artist Rae Gibson.
